Breast Cancer Bracelets | Ideas from Our Customers

In the U.S., it’s estimated that 1 in 8 women will develop breast cancer during her life.1 While a cancer diagnosis will turn anyone’s world upside down, our customers have found a few uses for custom breast cancer bracelets to make this life-changing event a bit easier to digest.

October is breast cancer awareness month, so it’s the perfect time to build awareness on this important cause. Providing extra support during a cancer warrior’s battle can make all the difference, so read on for the best ways to use custom silicone wristbands to aid in their journey!

Support

Creating custom breast cancer wristbands can help unite friends and family together as they look for ways to provide support to their newly diagnosed loved one. As Kathleen found, a simple wearable reminder can help you keep loved ones in your heart, mind, and prayers when they’re struggling.

Providing additional support to a cancer warrior’s circle can help strengthen them throughout the difficult times ahead. Add a personalized hashtag to show your support, and a comforting phrase to help build a mantra of strength and courage. Many customers choose a hashtag with their last name in it for their breast cancer bracelets, such as #SmithStrong. These custom rubber bracelets are often given to the group of individuals supporting the patient’s journey.

Some examples of common phrases used on breast cancer bracelets for support include: #TeamMadison, #KellyStrong, Cancer Sucks, No One Fights Alone, or phrases such as Sarah’s Warriors. These messages are often accompanied by awareness ribbons, heart clipart, or other graphics from our free art library.


Fundraising

It’s no secret that medical expenses rack up quickly, especially with something aggressive like breast cancer that requires multiple treatments and doctor visits. Joseph, along with many other customers, has found that designing and selling breast cancer awareness bracelets is a great way to build awareness for breast cancer while simultaneously raising funds.

Whether these funds are designated to help pay for medical bills, support families and individuals in need, or fund additional education and research, custom bracelets are a great choice for a fundraiser due to their affordability and versatility.

There are many fundraisers that benefit from using custom wristbands. We often hear about events such as races that are held to raise money as well as smaller-scale fundraisers that primarily sell the wristbands. No matter what method you try, it’s easy to create a breast cancer bracelet for the event.

Common phrases to include on fundraising wristbands for breast cancer awareness are: Find a Cure, #IRunForSydney (or other event hashtag or name), or messaging indicating what the funds are being raised for (research, support, etc.).


Motivation & Inspiration

It’s extremely easy to lose hope when life throws a curveball like breast cancer at you. As Cas and her family found, custom cancer bracelets can help provide another source of inspiration and give you hope for the future as you look to your ‘circle of strength’.

Education & Organizational Support

Businesses, nonprofits, and other organizations often create custom breast cancer bracelets in the fall for educational events to build awareness. How far the cancerous cells have spread at the time of diagnosis is critical, so providing a reminder of how important it is to follow recommended safety precautions and check for abnormalities could be life-changing. This is just one reason why custom breast cancer awareness bracelets are a great addition to an educational event, class, or assembly.

Common phrases to include: breast cancer awareness, supportive phrases, and personalized hashtags like #KendraStrong.


Medical IDs

Whether your loved one is newly diagnosed, receiving regular treatments, or is now cancer-free, having a comfortable medical ID is crucial to ensure proper treatment is received during emergencies. Judy ordered an eye-catching medical wristband for her mom so she could have peace of mind that medical professionals would know her mother’s pre-existing medical conditions in an emergency situation.

Common info to include on a medical ID bracelet: information about past surgeries, stage of cancer, treatments or medications currently being taken, and any underlying medical conditions that would affect the treatment given.


Gifts & Survivor Bands

Another fan-favorite use for our silicone bracelets is breast cancer gifts for women, typically in the form of gifts for survivors, or remembrance bands. Edith and her sisters wear their wristbands as a tribute to the fight they won and the blessings they’ve received in that victory.

If you have lost a loved one to breast cancer, you can create custom bracelets to hand out as memorial favors to help others remember their life and wear as a keepsake. Celebrate the strength they showed and the battle that was valiantly fought to the very end. Alan created a memorial bracelet for that very reason, to remember his best friend and what she means to him.

A few common phrases to engrave on cancer memorial bracelets include: Never Forgotten, Forever Loved, #ValiantlyFought, Brave, or other personal hashtags and phrases.

Trending Now: 3 Popular Ideas for Custom Bracelets

We see hundreds of creative bracelet designs come through each and every day. This season, we’ve noticed a spike in popularity with three designs in particular. From single wristbands to bulk orders, here are the up-and-coming custom bracelets design trends!

1 – Social Distancing Bracelets

A new bracelet design that has been a big hit this fall is color-coded event wristbands. The red, yellow, and green color combination has been the most common choice for events as they function as social distancing indicators. Guests can feel more comfortable as they choose the wristband color that fits their current level of social distancing and are able to easily communicate this level with other guests. We offer both blank and personalized rubber wristband options!

3 awesome wristbands

If red, green, and yellow isn’t your style, we have multiple color options to choose from. Add an event hashtag, slogan, or personal message to create a fun keepsake for guests to take home. You can easily create wristbands for a wedding, fundraiser, party, bridal shower, family reunion, or any other type of event!


2 – VOTE Bracelets

Michelle Obama’s VOTE necklace has made its way through the jewelry industry, and we’re now seeing orders for similar bracelet designs roll in. This election year you can share your message with the world in our eye-catching silicone bands. We believe that everyone’s message matters, so design something that will help you express yours!


3 – Coordinate Bracelets

Your favorite vacation spot. The city where you grew up. Where you met your significant other.

Our most cherished memories are tied to specific locations. The coordinates of the locations that are most near and dear to your heart make a great addition to a bracelet. Design one for yourself or to give as a gift that is both thoughtful and meaningful.

Coordinate bracelets are also a popular option for couples bracelets or anniversary gifts! You can add the coordinates on the front and a personal message on the back to make your wristband even more unique and special. Choose from our available styles and layouts to make the perfect memento.


Runner Up: WW_D Bracelets

While the “What Would ______ Do” wristband isn’t new, its demand is growing and, therefore, deserves the runner-up title. Starting with the ever-so-popular WWJD (What Would Jesus Do) band, we’ve seen more and more customers ordering bands with their own initials and meaning.

One of the most frequently ordered acronyms is “WWMD”. Whether the ‘M’ represents ‘Mom’, ‘Meredith’, or some other name, each acronym has its own meaning. Give meaning to your wristband, and add a source of inspiration to your day, by adding the first initial of your favorite role model.

The possibilities are endless with custom bracelets. Stick around to see more trends and exciting ways to share your message. Whether your message is intended for the world, a friend, or just yourself, wear it proudly!

Top 5 Uses for Faith-Based Wristbands

Silicone wristbands are still one of the most popular ways to share what you’re passionate about and promote causes you believe in with people around the world. Reminderband is thrilled to have helped so many people from different walks of life and various beliefs share their messages through our wristbands. Faith has a different meaning for everyone, and with that understanding, we’d like to feature a topic that has continued to grow in popularity: using silicone wristbands for faith.

Where to Start:

There is a wealth of pre-made silicone bracelets including WWJD (What Would Jesus Do?) and many other popular scripture verses and inspirational phrases. Another huge hit is the Philippians 4:13 wristband, which includes the engraving “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me”. These wristbands are affordable and comfortable to wear either longterm or just for an event. They’re perfect for a simple but impactful daily reminder and morale boost.

If you’re looking to fine-tune the message and make it especially personal to you, your family, or group ministry and congregation, check out the personalized wristbands and design your own.

Still need ideas? Whether it’s for personal use or groups and events, there is a myriad of ideas for using rubber bracelets for religious purposes.

Top 5 Ways to Use Silicone Bracelets for Your Faith:

1. Daily Reminders or Personal Motivators

It can be hard to remember what’s most important during your busy day; however, a religious wristband can serve as a gentle reminder to live according to your faith. When life gets rough, a little nudge to keep going and “endure to the end” can help motivate you to make the best decisions (Matthew 24:13). Both sides of the wristband can be customized, giving you plenty of space to engrave your favorite messages.

Other inspirational quotes and motivational phrases can also be used. Whether it’s a simple phrase like “Do Hard Things”, or a quote you love, such as “Every moment is a fresh beginning” (T.S. Eliot), you can add whatever helps you to strive to be your best.

2. Group Activity Wristbands

If you’re part of a ministry or church congregation, it’s common to have activities themed around a specific quote or scripture. Using silicone wristbands for those events makes for an elegant and affordable solution to make the event a success. With everyone wearing matching wristbands, the group will feel even more united. Even after the activity is over, attendees will still remember the experience and the memories they had when they see their wristband.

3. Youth Camps

Like group activities, youth camps for youth ministry, scouting, or just plain old fun can also benefit from using custom or faith-based wristbands. Silicone bracelets can be used to identify different groups at a camp as well as memorialize the experience and serve as a fun souvenir for the kids. See how one such Christian-based camp is using wristbands to elevate the camp experience here.

4. Gifts

Silicone wristbands make great gifts among friends, family, and other church members. Whether they’re given out as a holiday or neighbor gift, a birthday gift, or a “just because” gift, people everywhere appreciate the thoughtful nature of a personalized wristband. This applies in any case, but a message of faith can be especially heartwarming to a friend or neighbor who is going through a hard time.

WWJDLifestyleMom

5. Fundraisers

Need a great way to raise money without breaking the bank? Rubber wristbands can be designed and purchased in bulk at a better per-band price, which makes them an excellent fundraising option. Wearing a wristband with a well-known quote or scripture verse is an easy way for people to incorporate their faith into their lifestyle, and promote a wholesome cause through donating via your fundraiser. You’ll be able to fund your activity, camp, or other church efforts in no time by reselling these easy-to-design custom wristbands!

Reminderband Customers Who Love Their Wristbands of Faith

We receive a lot of feedback about how our customers are using their wristbands, and we love to hear those stories. Here are just a few that make us proud:

  • One Amazon customer says about his WWJD wristband: “I love this wristband and get a lot of questions [about] what it stands for. It is a great motivation for me and gives me a visual when I need a little reminder.”
  • Carla T. from CA says “I have been ordering from this company for years. Great quality!! This is a way I advertise the word of God through scripture.”

Canines-N-Kids Use Reminderbands for Cancer Awareness

Screen Shot 2018-08-31 at 4.09.12 PM.png

Canines-n-Kids used Reminderband wristbands as a giveaway to participants at their “Paws for a Cure Summit” last summer in Washington, DC, and at their first annual “Two by Four Race Against Childhood & Canine Cancer” in October of 2017, in Brambleton, VA.

Screen Shot 2018-08-31 at 4.08.43 PM.png

Man’s Best Friend Is A Kid’s Best Friend in Cancer
Most people don’t realize that both children and dogs develop several cancers in common including bone cancer, brain cancer, lymphoma, and leukemia.

Canines-N-Kids Foundation states:  “16,000 kids are diagnosed with cancer each year.  With only three new kids’ cancer drugs in 20 years, there is little money behind new drugs; only 4% of NIH’s budget goes to pediatric oncology.  Some 4,000,000 dogs in the US are diagnosed with cancer. 50% of all dogs over the age of ten die from their disease and treatment options are limited for man’s best friend.”

Through treating cancer in dogs, we can better learn how to help children with those same cancers.  A cure for one aids in curing the other.

Here’s a Great idea for Wristbands…(Feature Friday)

Do you need to share a message that stays with people and leaves an impact?

25881842_atkins_devay_and_crowd.jpeg

Devay Campbell is a career coach and business mentor who wants to do just that. She is hosting a Classroom to Career tour to “empower students and equip them with the knowledge they need to get hired and be successful in their careers.” Her plan is to be able to reach one thousand students for the 2017-18 school year.

Devay has designed her own wristbands with a message she hopes will inspire students to remain ambitious and to continue to pursue what they want out of their lives and careers.

unnamed-10.png

She plans to use them to promote her message and serve as a tangible reminder to “always dream no matter what.”

“After so long, we think it is too late.” Says Devay, “We all need a reminder that it is never too late to follow and achieve our dreams. I want to leave this message behind with the students!”

We love this idea and we wish Devay the very best of luck in her tour. To learn more, visit her Facebook page. Want to be featured in our next Feature Friday?

Feature Friday: Young Survival Coalition

25881848_day_1_start.png

Young Survival Coalition (YSC) is the premier organization dedicated to the critical issues unique to young women who are diagnosed with breast cancer. YSC offers resources, connections, and outreach so women feel supported, empowered and hopeful.

The YSC was founded in 1998 by three women who were each under age 35 at the time of their diagnosis. Discouraged by the scarcity of resources and awareness of young women with breast cancer, so they formed an alliance through which they could make an impact.

unnamed (13).jpg

YSC has three charity bike rides each year: one in each of the South, East, and West Coasts. This event, the Tour de Pink (TdP) is “an inspiring three-day charity bike ride, with a one-day option, that raises funds for young women affected by breast cancer.”

These rides are completely equipped with the proper furnishings of bike and motorcycle marshals, vehicle support, and plenty of rest stops. They also have lodging and meals for the three-day riders, who commit to raising $2,500 each.

Rachel Kelley, a three-day rider in the YSC Tour de Pink West Coast, will be selling the wristbands to contribute to her fundraising efforts. All proceeds from her wristbands will be donated to YSC through her fundraising page, here.

4 Awesome uses for Tyvek Wristbands

Looking to jazz up your upcoming event but need ideas? Or do you just love our gorgeous Tyvek wristbands, but need a good reason to design some? Here are four awesome ideas for Tyvek bracelets to get you started:

1. Parties or Celebrations

Since clowns seem to be on the outs these days, one of the best ways to amp up a small (or large) party is to design your very own Tyvek bands for ultimate swag effect. Whether it’s for a sweet sixteen bash or a rowdy graduation party, these make for a colorful, and unique handout for everyone to wear at the shindig.

IMG_2351.JPG

Choose from one of our templates and backgrounds, or design your own and upload that magic yourself! Planning for a small group? No problem. We have the lowest minimums anywhere; order just one wristband, if you like! (Invite a friend, though, because a solo party sounds sad.)

2. Concerts and Performances

Want to get the word out about an upcoming performance?  Whether you’re just promoting an event, or using Tyvek for entry tickets and identification, the possibilities are nonstop.

IMG_2350.JPG

 

Tyvek bands can be used to great effect here, and they even double as tickets, with bar codes and sequential numbering offered as an option to add to your design.tyvek_concert2.a82e75e8a953 (1).png

tyvek_concert3.3c5ada89cdfc (1).png

Not for a big venue? That’s okay! These are great for local shows, school performances, a battle of the bands, or even little Rachel’s piano recital.

tyvek_concert.b293a38bd2c6 (1).jpg

Creating the perfect design is half the fun!

3. Festivals and Fairs

Are you in charge of helping to run the local Rennesaince fair? Helping with the County Fair, or local city Festival? Do away with those ugly plain old bracelets and use Tyvek wristbands to make your ticket/entry bracelet into a piece of art. These make for a great advertisement along with a way to identify patrons.

tyvek_theme_park.57e0e86df572 (1).jpg

We’ve got oodles of font and artwork options, so be sure to play around with your design until it really pops!

4. Fundraisers and Awareness

True to our roots, we offer excellent design options for putting on a fundraiser for just about anything, or to raise awareness in your community, or across the country. Unlimited options are at your disposal to strike the perfect chord for an ongoing fundraiser, or a one-night event. Make your message loud and clear!

IMG_2352.JPG

Need them fast? We’ve got speedy production and shipping options available, and we’ll bend over backward to make your wristbands for your event on time. Still unclear? Check out our events page, shoot us an email, give us a call, or hit us up on social media. We’re always happy to chat!

Feature Friday: Brenden Writes

Today’s feature focuses on a writer whose books are part of a mission to stop bullying.

11-year-old Brenden Santos has published not one, but three books to date.

BS-2.jpg

 

Says Santos, “I have a few missions in life and I have a campaign against bullying.” Santos began working on his three books at age ten and has since created a website, www.againstthebullying.com.

 

To help spread his message, Santos has distributed wristbands among the community, sharing the essence of his campaign “only one me”. He has been making some waves with his progress, and recently met and had dinner with the Lt. Governer of North Carolina.

Santos has big plans for the future of his anti-bullying campaign:

“I am trying to get bully awareness to be one day in August and one day in September because when school starts is when bullying is at its peak.
I want everyone to wear my wrist bands and look at them and remember there’s only one me and that means you.”

You can learn more about Brenden’s mission against bullying and his books at his website.

Santos plans to continue his efforts with his writing and sharing his mantra: “I hope that one day I can have enough money so that I can buy millions of wristbands as I would like to give them away free to everyone in the world so that not only children but also adults who get bullied can remember we all matter.”

We wish Brenden and his cause the very best of luck!

Awareness Bracelets Lupus Uncategorized Who's Wearing Wristbands? Wristband Ideas

Feature Friday: Lupus Awareness

Alexis Teixeira was diagnosed with Lupus at age 14 and has fought for many years through testing and treatments to get proper help. When she was eventually married, she was currently receiving exams but developed preeclampsia after becoming pregnant with their daughter Gianna. Lupus played a part in her high-risk pregnancy and Gianna was born prematurely.

Thankfully, Gianna is doing quite well and is almost four-years-old. Alexis’ husband Luis saw the need for a great deal of awareness that Lupus just wasn’t getting; so he took matters into his own hands. Since his epiphany, Luis has used his rally driving career as a way to promote better awareness for Lupus. His race team Wicked Nasty Motorsports took to representing Lupus awareness (purple) in their team colors. This has allowed the whole family to share the message of awareness and the struggles of Lupus with many, many others.

25876135_mx_476.png

“So often we overlook the loved ones of those suffering from Lupus who are living through the difficult experiences with them.”

Alexis says her husband’s efforts to raise awareness is a good example for the community, and that everyone can help.

Part of their campaign to raise awareness includes handing out Reminderband wristbands at the racing events, which have been designed with the Wicked Nasty Motorsports logo along with “Lupus Awareness”.

If you would like to learn more about Lupus, head over to lupus.org.

We wish Alexis and her family all the best and we thank them for sharing their story with us!
